Eames Storage Units are emblematic of the grace and whimsy Charles and Ray Eames used in designing home furnishing solutions.

A result of work they had done for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, these pieces reveal the "machine aesthetic" and Japanese influences important to the Eameses at the time. Long before "modularity" and "high tech" entered the language, Charles and Ray combined standardized parts in many ways to create practical furnishings that suit a variety of uses.

The molded plywood and wire cross-supports used in Eames Storage Units echo other classic Eames designs, including their wire chairs, wire-base tables, and molded plywood chairs.
